It was one of the most popular English-language novels of its time, and helped establish Cooper as one of the first world-famous American writers.The story takes place in 1757 during the French and Indian War, when France and Great Britain battled for control of the American and Canadian colonies. During this war, the French often allied themselves with Native American tribes in order to gain an advantage over the British, with unpredictable and often tragic results. Summary from Wikipedia.

Thank you for a lovely reading!
I completely agree with the former reveiwer: "the character voices are harsh and grating to the ears". However, I find it to be a minor fault. On the whole the reading is coherent and moving. I have enjoyed it tremendously, and I'm grateful to the reader for his efforts. I would also like to applaud him for reading the whole book, which adds to my enjoyment as a listener (compared to the case of several readers sharing the task).

It was a good story. His regular reading voice was pleasnt enough to make the story enjoyable, however the character voices he used were harsh and grating to my ears. The voices were also distracting from the story, especially while trying to interperate the figuritive language of the indians.
